We are a group of computer security enthusiasts who put together a fun non-profit computer security conference for like minded folk in Australia.
Established in 2003, Ruxcon has not only become the premier technical security conference in Australia, but has also gained recognition internationally. The conference is a mixture of live presentations, activities and demonstrations presented by security experts from the Aus-Pacific region and invited guests from around the world. Ruxcon is widely regarded as a leading computer security conference within Australia attracting all facets of the security landscape from industry, academics to enthusiasts.
Ruxcon is unique in that it believes that a security conference should be fun, accessible, and affordable to all levels of the security industry. Ruxcon is held over the weekend in a venue providing a relaxed and informal atmosphere.
The conference audience is fairly diverse, but typically our delegates are working in IT roles for blue-chip companies such as banks and telecommunications companies. The common theme that brings everyone together is a passion for IT security and all things geeky.
We're looking for a layout template/design that we can use to update the content for our 2010 conference handbook.
We need the following page designs:
1) General text
2) Time table
3) Front/back/inside covers
Pages need to include numbering.
Ruxcon usually goes with a crocodile theme, please feel free to experiment with that - though it is not a requirement. We're after a professional but fun looking handbook.
Please see the Ruxcon 2008 handbook PDF to get an idea of the handbook structure we are after. But please don't use it for inspiration - we feel the overall design/palette is terrible!
Feel free to experiment with colors and pretty much everything else!
The format we require is either:
Adobe Illustrator Document (AI)
Adobe Photoshop Document (PSD)
The handbook is handed to each conference delegate, is printed in full color and has a glossy finish. The finished size of the booklet is A5 (148mm × 210mm).
